Another verdict handed down against Nawaz, rails PML-N leader
ISLAMABAD: Taking strong exception to the Supreme Court’s historic verdict determining the duration of disqualification of parliamentarians under Article 62(1)(f), Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader and Federal Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb on Friday termed it ‘conspiracy’ and another verdict against ousted premier Nawaz Sharif.
Speaking to the media outside the apex court, she said once again a verdict has been handed down against the thrice-elected prime minister.
Such verdicts had been given in the past, which led to the execution of former prime minister Zulifkar Ali Bhutto and assassination of Benazir Bhutto, she said.
The PML-N leader said the disqualification verdict against Sharif was given even before conclusion of his trial. Corruption of not a single penny has been proven against him, she claimed.
The PML-N leader said the accusation on the basis of which he was disqualified has yet to be proved.
She said even the former premier’s honesty is borne out by none other than NAB’s star witness Wajid Zia, the head of the Panama Joint Investigation (JIT), in the case filed against the Sharif family.
The minister said Sharif was disqualified on the basis of “an incomplete trial”.
